I started college as an undeclared freshman with no clue what the future held for me. I signed up for whatever random classes my advisor threw at me and hoped for the best. It wasn't until the end of my first semester that I started to get an image in my head of what I actually wanted to major in: Asian Studies. I never really expected to figure out a major my first year of college, let alone my first semester. By then I realized I really wanted to learn Japanese, too late of course as I was spending my time learning Italian instead of the language I really wanted to be learning. When I realized I had to wait all the way until the next fall to enroll in a Japanese class I was disappointed, I had found something I really wanted and I couldn't have it until I became a sophomore. I didn't want to wait. I decided I was going to spend my summer learning as much of the Japanese language as I could, and what better placed to learn it than in Japan? That’s how I found the KCP International Japanese Language School and decided I needed to apply. …show more content…
I had the option to study abroad through my universities program, but it was very short and didn't offer the intense language learning program I was looking for. I want to be able to go to Japan for the summer and get the most out of the trip as I possibly can. I want to be able to learn as much Japanese as I can over the course of 8 weeks, and I believe KCP is the perfect program for achieving my goals. Trying to learn a years worth of Japanese in such a short time frame will not be an easy task, but I believe I have enough willpower and determination to apply myself and do well. My goal for this program is to be able to learn the basics of the Japanese language and be able to go out and immerse myself in the culture with some degree of
I am currently a year 11 students at Beauchamp College. I believe myself to be a dedicated, self-motivated as well as a confident person. I can complete tasks on my own but I can also work well as part of a team. More over I cope extremely well under pressure and always aspire to do everything to the best of my ability. Whilst I have clear objectives, I also take in advice and use it to better my self as a person.
I am a nontraditional student, currently employed by Children’s Mercy Hospital where I work as the Division Manager for the Emergency Department. I am a senior at UMKC, who will move directly into a Masters program upon completion of my BLA degree. I was born in Wallace, Idaho but have lived all over the country (Hawaii, Las Vegas, Minneapolis, Dallas, and Seattle) and now reside in the Waldo/Brookside area. I have taken several online courses and have enjoyed them all. I particularly like an instructor who loads the entire class online from day one. I am very busy with my job and family and like to have the option to work ahead a little just in case something comes up at work unexpectedly. I took English 311 American Literature

After I graduate with my bachelor's degree I wish to get my master's degree. After I finish my schooling I want to receive a job that allows me to provide for my family.

I am the daughter of immigrant, and I myself, am an immigrant. We emigrated Africa when I was seven for various reasons, two of them being political instability and the lack of an effective education system. I am the second oldest of five siblings, meaning I am a first generation college student. With neither of my parents going beyond a high school education, they were unable to fully support my siblings or I financially or in terms of education. Because of that, they put it upon themselves to teach us the importance of education, independence and hard work from a young age. Throughout high school, I worked 2 jobs in order to support myself, and still managed to be in the top half of my class. Through hard work, I ended up getting a full ride to UNL. At the end of senior year I even ended up landing an internship with the UNL Chemistry department for a summer, which I continued working on throughout freshmen year of college.
DI would say, successfully starting over as a non traditional student is my most meaningful achievement to date. While I've achieved most, if not all, goals that I've set to carry out, Most meaningfully, coming to terms with a juvenile decision and not giving up serves as my most telling accomplishment.
Pursuing college has always been one of my biggest goals to achieve in life. After high school, I will higher my education by attending college. My ultimate goal will be to one day become a veterinarian. The love and compassion I have for animals plays a big role in choosing this course of study. Growing up on a ranch, I am exposed to animals such as horses, cows, dogs, chickens, and rabbits. Tending to the animals and keeping them in good health gives me the experience I need to see if the veterinarian study is fitting for myself. Furthermore, I plan to attend BYU-Idaho which offers a pre vet course that gives students who are seeking to become veterinarians the opportunity to intern at a vet
When I started my collegiate journey, I felt lost. I fell in love with a wonderful school, but after my first quarter, taking Earth Science courses, I felt like I had made a massive mistake in the original major I had chosen. At Cal Poly, it was necessary that all students declare a major before being accepted and as a high school senior, I had no idea what I wanted to become. I felt like I never had the opportunity to explore my options before making this large decision. Therefore, I ended up at a school that I loved, but in a major I was not enthusiastic about.
I am applying for college admission, educational opportunity programs, and special opportunities following high school graduation. I would appreciate your recommendation to include in my applications.
We all go through hard things in our lives. Some of these changes alter the way we live negatively while others bring around great positive change. I have gone through one of these changes and I believe I have greatly progressed as a person from it. I came here from Iran, speaking very little English and I believe myself to be relatively fluent now. I came to Trade Tech to learn more about my passion, chemistry. In Iran, I graduated from a pre-university with the equivalent of an Associates Degree in Chemistry. Here, at Trade Tech, I am double majoring in Chemistry and Math and hope to earn an Associates Degree in Chemistry and transfering to a UC or Ivy League college.
This is a question that has been on my mind since elementary school. Of course at that time, I never thought about it, in fact I use to wonder, “What does that mean, what do I want to be when I grow up”? All my teachers have asked me that now and then. If you asked me that question when I was in Kindergarten or second grade I would say a doctor, maybe a lawyer or even the president of the United States.
There’s a new class rising amongst the generation of freshmen moving into a new world of responsibilities of what must be done to complete college on the winning side of completing college. Anxious, excited and yet nervous, but on top of that, the achievement of getting that acceptance letter can almost lead to a hangover off celebration if not careful. This is a momentous time, but before an extensive celebration there should be a self-evaluation that even Mark Edmundson asks in his text: “Who Are You And What Are You Doing Here?” I was there, in 2013 was finally the time for me to move forward, but it wasn’t sweet. I didn’t graduate high school with my diploma because I didn’t pass the mandatory graduation test. I didn’t want to sit out a semester so
In addition to my personal statement, I would also like to add some events in my college career that caused my grades to fluctuate. During my semesters, I was dealing with parent sickness, as well as 2 of my close friends, including my roommate, attempting to commit suicide. I was also dealing with some stalking issues with some men I do not know and was able to resolve the issue with the Rutgers University Police Department. Although these events had an impact on my grades, I still have not changed any of my future ambitions. I understand that they aren’t an excuse for letting my grades slip, but they can be taken under consideration if needed. Thank you.
When I first heard of the Student Assistant Program, I saw a perfect opportunity to build skills and obtain valuable work experience. I also realized that by working in this program, I would not have to worry as much about finances and can focus more on my studies at the University of Washington. In addition, this program is an ideal work opportunity because the Seattle Public Library system has branches close to the college, and it would be easy to walk from one to the other.
As a pre-teen, I stepped foot in America with my mother and younger brother. Recently, I completed my high school education and desire to pursue further studies while I’m still here. My mom will be completing her degree in an organizational leadership program within the next year. After she’s done, she’s going back to our country, India. In that span of time, I want to change my status from F2 dependent to F1 student, so that I could utilize my time better and gain more knowledge along with a college experience. I need your permission to be on an independent visa after my mother leaves.
I am pleased to begin my time at National Park for a number of reasons. Though achieving a higher education has always been a high priority of mine, the road to college has been particularly adverse and burdensome for me. The opportunity to attend NPC has bestowed a taste for success in my heart, and a confidence in my mind that anything can be achieved with enough determination. I look forward to utilizing that ambition to pursue my educational goals this year.
